The Partners

   The partners in the consortium represent the whole value chain from technology provider to an industrial end-user from the European steel sector. The consortium represents 9 partners from 5 member states, bringing together technology providers, adsorbent and catalyst manufacturers, to system design and engineering companies through to industrial end-users committed to proactive dissemination and information exchange with stakeholders and other CCS technology developments.

   The adsorbent and catalyst materials form the heart of the SEWGS CO2 capture technology. Kisuma Chemicals (Netherlands) and Johnson Matthey (United Kingdom) are responsible for material development and production, while ECN (Netherlands) provides the SEWGS technology.

   The Politecnico de Milano (Italy) and the Universitatea Babes-Bolyai (Romania) are performing the techno-economic analyses and the life-cycle analysis, to compare the SEWGS based technology with alternative CO2 capture technologies on technical, economic and environmental impact.

   The pilot plant will be built at and operated by Swerea MEFOS (Sweden). The pilot plant will receive BFG from the adjacent steel plant of SSAB (Sweden). Amec Foster Wheeler Italiana (Italy), with their experience designing IGCC plants, gas turbine combined cycle power plants and hydrogen plants and deep knowledge on technologies for CO2 capture, guides the study on the large-scale SEWGS-integrated plant. Together, SSAB and Tata Steel Consulting (United Kingdom) as the end-users are able to support the project with deeper understanding of the processes and process systems involved in modern integrated steel plants. They are the parties that can value the comparison of the SEWGS technology with alternative technologies to reduce the CO2 footprint of today's and future steel plants.
